I. WE WERE CREATED TO “MAKE MUCH OF HIM”

Yes, LORD, walking in the way of your laws, we wait for you; your name and renown are the desire of our hearts. (Isaiah 26:8 NIV. Reference Verses: Exodus 9:16, Romans 11:36, Isaiah 43:7, I Corinthians 10:31, Psalm 86:12, )

II. WE ARE COMMANDED TO SACRIFICIALLY SERVE & LOVE PEOPLE

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” (Matthew 22:36-40 ESV, Reference Verses: Mark 10:45, Luke 6:27-28, John 15:13, Ephesians 5:1-2) 

III. WE ARE COMMANDED TO FULFILL “THE GREAT COMMISSION”

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nationsbaptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:16-20 ESV, Reference Verses:  Mark 16:15-20, Luke 24:46-47, John 20:21, Acts 1:8)
